I've never wanted a van so bad.
Mercedes has somehow made a van desirable. Very desirable imo.
AMG version?
can you review a eurofighter typhoon, im very interested in buying one and im not sure about the interior quality and reliability many thanks
Doug DeMuro reviewed the shuttle version. Doug, This is a Mercedes Benz Minivan.
Ginny's enthusiasm really works well in this review!

Looks better than a Ford Transit or a VW transporter
Mercedes "tablet" screen looks like shit on all their models..just terrible...Waiting to see what Brabus can do with this
Today I had the chance to drive the new V-class and I loved it! Never thought driving a van could be this good... It rides so smoothly! It's so easy to drive and it's even quick. Ours is the 250d and even tho it's a big and heavy van, it feels great at 170kmh in the left lane on the Autobahn. It's also stable in corners. Our last van, an Iveco was terrible in corners. Leaning and bouncing all over the place. The interior of this thing is beautifly made with wood trim and the driver''s seat is extremely comfortable. The audio system is probably the best van system I've heard and it has electric sliding doors that make my inner 9-year old happy.. Now there are two vans that I like. The VW Multivan and the V-class.

"History of making good vans" LOL Mercedes vans rust badly within five years of use.
Henry Rahardja
if you think the V-class is luxurious, you should go to Asia and try Japan's big size MPV like Toyota Alphard, Honda Elysion, and Nissan Elgrand. They're on pretty different level in term of equipment and feature
Fake Toyota Alphard?

Volvo is my pick here
Anyone interested in this thing should try googling "Toyota alphard". Seriously just import one from Japan instead of buying this thing.

This is great for Taxis as I've seen a few of them in London, Dublin, Munich & Salsburg

"Shake, rattle and roll" sounds like my collage bus, a 12 year old called Dennis.
Toyota Velfire and Alphard epitome of the glamorous van

so it's nice, quite and upmarket when it's standing still??? :)
David Hayes
The biggest thorn in the V class side is the VW transporter/caravelle. It holds its value better too.

@Carbuyer Can those middle seats be put in the forward direction or is it fixed this way from the factory?

i still think the germans cant compete with the Japanese makes in this category. The Toyota Vellfire have been able to do all those things the Mercedes claims to be state of the art innovation for people carrier and most important of all the japanese makes looks so much better than the mercedes.

Real motoring expertise.... Right. What about realistic options, like the new Carnival, the Espace or something American.

I hired one of these via budget car rental in Barcelona. I couldn't have imagined that the Germans would make such a large car with such poor parking sensors. Ok the one I had wasn't a sport or executive model, but I still expect a constant beeping and a visual dashboard visual notification as I'm getting closer to the object behind me. All I got was about 2 seconds of beeping just before the thud of contact. I actually returned the first one back to the base as I was convinced there was a major fault. The replacement cars sensors were only marginally better. Funnily enough all the ones the budget had in their Barcelona airport fleet were showing signs of rear scrapes. I wonder why. I'm guessing Mercedes are trying to make people spend extra on a rear camera. Space wise, the van is excellent. But as a previous commenter pointed out, the seats are not the most flexible. For example the rear 3 don't fold flat to the floor. That would be really useful. Straight line speed is very good, so I can't complain about the performance of the vehicle on the Spanish motorways. Given its size I wouldn't push it on the twisty turny roads. I'll be given another one by Budget this summer 2019. At least I know what to failings of the are.

When I’m older I might get that car

The one thing I disliked about this MPV is the seats facing backwards. It looks good on paper and in a situation where you are stopped for a picnic (and it's raining), it's great.. but so many people get car sickness from travelling backwards.. enough that it would make that row of seats useless to a lot of people.
I am Allergic to Ford's, sorry. dad had a first gen Galaxy and it was... a Nightmare to say the least. no seriously it was. on the E4 all of the sudden it just quit and we got almost run over my an 18 wheeler from behind.

shes been inside one or two vans!
"They've got a long history of building excellent vans", really? My last van was a vito worst van I've ever had, noisy, uncomfortable, slow, horrible to drive crap on fuel and don't get me started on the foot operated hand brake. Not to mention they rust like crazy and aren't reliable, mine blew up at 50k miles. I then inherited a 90k mile be transporter, miles better
Jack Coe
This doesn't have something a Kia has - rear heated seats!
Bring this to indonesia please, it can compete with toyota alphard, nissan elgrand, and vw caravelle....
